R.E.M.: Out of Time: Country Feedback


 [Out of Time]
"EST, psychics, fuck all"
The "EST" in Country Feedback is probably the self-assertiveness encounter therapy called EST, which stood for "Erhard Sensitivity Training". A man, Werner Erhard, in the seventies, concocted weekend "self-improvement" seminars to make people "tougher" and more "responsible." He made tons of money by locking large groups of future yuppies in Holiday Inn convention rooms, yelling at them a lot, and refusing to let them leave, even to go to the bathroom. [Ron Henry]
